Tuesday's doubleheader sweep of Roseau that didn't end until 10:30 p.m. may have taken a toll on the Bemidji Legion baseball team. Wednesday the Legion played "sluggish baseball", according to coach Mike Fogelson, in a doubleheader loss at Little Falls.

The home team took the opener 10-3 and captured the rematch 7-2.

"Little Falls is a good team and they got after us late in each game," Fogelson said. "Little Falls hit the ball and we struggled defensively. We let the games get away from us."

In the opener Bemidji led 3-2 after three innings but Little Falls tied it with a solo run in the fourth and scored seven runs in its final two at-bats to capture the victory.

Little Falls scored two in the first but the Legion answered with one in the second. Errors on grounders hit by Tyler Tatro and Mason Bellew set the stage for Matt Hietala's sacrifice fly.

Bemidji took a 3-2 lead with a pair in the third. Tyler Follis reached on a fielder's choice and, after stealing second, scored when Cody Rutledge singled. Rutledge eventually scored when Tatro singled.

The home team took control with three in the fifth, an inning which featured three hits, a walk and a hit batter. A pair of errors and three hits produced four more Little Falls runs in the sixth.

Follis took the mound loss. He yielded 10 hits and walked two.

In Wednesday's nightcap Bemidji trailed 3-2 after five innings but Little Falls scored three insurance tallies in the sixth.

Bemidji's runs came in the fourth when Follis walked, Rutledge singled, Tatro doubled and Bellew delivered an RBI groundout.

The Legion is off until Monday when it begins a homestand that includes three doubleheaders is as many days. Little Falls will head to Bemidji on Monday for a rematch and Tuesday Perham pays a visit. The homestand concludes Wednesday against Nisswa.
